Actresses of younger generation are eager to work with Shah Rukh Khan. After Deepika, Katrina, Anushka and Alia, it could be a lucky chance for Sonam Kapoor to be cast opposite SRK. However, she seems a little bit flattened about it. As a prominent entertainment tabloid revealed,
She is Aanand L Rai’s favourite actress and he wanted to cast her in his next, where Khan plays a dwarf. Katrina has already been signed for one role in the film, and another actress is yet to be cast. It is learnt that she even texted SRK. Sonam feels pretty deflated that he doesn’t share her excitement about working together. Now, the actress has given up the idea of working with Shah Rukh with grace and feels if he wants to work with her, he will.
Certain parts of the film are set in Meerut so Aanand will spend some time there to familiarise himself with the culture and the people. They are expected to start rolling in the first half of next year.
Aanand L Rai usually takes two to three years to complete a film. This time he is afraid that it may take more. The movie will demand a lot of hard work from the actor. He previously said that movie is going to be extremely tough on emotional and technical background.
